    Query Calculation

    I have multiple fields I need to calculate together and I am not getting the result I am looking for.
    I have a field called TTL%BILLED I thought it should look like this but it doesn't work.



    TTL%BILLED:[previously billed]+[current billed]/[ttl contract].

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thank you
    Kellyd

    I would not use the "%" in a name.
    TotBilled:=([previously billed]+[current billed])/[ttl contract].
    Are all of these fields in the same record?

    It wasn't the expression, it was an extra space in a field heading or something. I retyped all of my field headings and it came out correctly

    That's great! I guess you are ready to use the Solved thread tool now, right?
